5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

If in Florence, this is a tour that should be at the top of bucket list. Enhanced by guide Lorenzo.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

This was the best tour of our 8-day trip to Italy. There were five of us in an extremely comfortable Mercedes minivan. Our guide/driver Yaris was informative, enthusiastic, and solicitous of our collective wishes of what we wanted to do with our day together. We visited San Gimignano in the morning, had lunch at a wonderful agriturismo restaurant overlooking the town and the rolling countryside, After a short stop in Monteriggioni, it was off to Siena for the balance of the afternoon. If Florence is your base in Tuscany, and you don't have your own car, I highly recommend this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

Lorenzo was an excellent guide. Organized, polite, attentive. Tour itself was excellent, contrasting the larger towns and the small fortress that is Monteriggioni. Nice to have the time to enjoy it, and go in a van to places tour buses would find difficult to navigate.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2015

This tour was amazing! We had a wonderful guide who was very knowledgeable about the area and history. It was a great day!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2015

The tour ended up being a private tour given lack of demand on the date requested. That change was a bit bumpy with the local service provider but in the end it all worked out. It gave us a lot of flexibility and these towns are amazing to experience. Our driver/guide was fantastic.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

An excellent tour, we really recommend it. It is a small tour with max 8 people. The guide was very friendly, helpful and flexible with what could be done when visting the different areas.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2013

We enjoyed this tour. The guide really knew the history of the area.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2013

Having done this tour last year in a large bus it was a pleasure to do it with 6 people in total in a lovely Mercedes Van. Our guide Anthony was just like travelling with a family friend. He was so helpful and gave us lots of facts. This was a very relaxing day with enough time in each town to really look around. I think this is the best way to see Tuscany.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2013

Our group of seven had a private tour which was just perfect with plenty of time to enjoy the stops. Tiberious, our guide was so professional and informative, we couldn't have asked for a better guide. The medieval fortress of Monterriggioni was amazing. The whole trip was a delight.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2013

This was a great tour, particularly as there were only 7 in the group plus the driver. it was nice to get out of Florence and into the countryside. The cathedral in Siena was just amazing, perhaps one of the best I saw in all Italy. We had time to ourselves in both places which was great.
